  1. Preheat oven to 180°C. Heat a dash of oil in a frying pan and quickly brown the onion, beef mince and garlic. This is best done in two batches. Add the diced vegetables, Wattie’s Traditional Tomato & Herb Pasta Sauce and beef stock or water. Simmer for 10 minutes.
  2. Cut the lasagne sheets to fit the base of a lasagne style dish (2L capacity). Grease the base and place a sheet into the base of the dish. Top with 1/3 of the mince mixture. Repeat the layers finishing with a layer of pasta.

Creamy Cheese Topping

  1. Mix together the cottage cheese with garlic and chives and the lite cream cheese and spread over the top of the pasta. Sprinkle over the Parmesan cheese.
  2. Bake for 40 minutes until golden and hot. Serve with a salad on the side.
